Unanswered Question

Hi there. I'm 170, 5'10" and ride a 9.5/10 boot. I learned to ride on a Nitro Target 159, which was way to big for me. I found myself swinging the board around to carve effectively. Overall, the board was way to heavy for anything but downhill cruising.

I mostly ride all mountain, and only dabble in the park. I demoed the 154cm Ltd Custom Vrocker and fell in love. I was cruising and the size felt ok. I also demoed the 156 custom just to test the size, but was no longer impressed with traditional camber and was therefore biased against the board.

My question is: I love the maneuverability of a shorter board, but still want to all-out bomb a trail at max speed. Should I go with the 154 vrocker or step it up to a 156? Would the 154 still give me the stability? I heard that sizing down on a vrocker is recommended. Is this true?
